In my last post I had a look at the bigger picture of challenges and opportunities for young architects in a tough economy. ‘Technology’ is the first of two more in-depth looks at the possibilities. Here, the focus is on 3D, and specifically ‘intelligent’ 3D. Intelligence is what separates the old from the new as far as possibilities go – not just representation of a building but simulation of it. For inspiration we do not have to look far because the principles are well established in the field of industrial design. It is no coincidence that as architecture has become more organic (‘blobified’) we have looked to ID for the tools to realise our ideas.
